Why can't I pin Microsoft Office applications?

When I just installed Intel Optane Memory software I could pin Word, Excel and Powerpoint, which I use very often. Now, a week later, Office applications have disappeared and I can't pin them again. Any ideas how to solve this issue? Thanks in advance for anybody's help.

Thank you for answering. Sorry about such little information. I'm using Office 365 and Windows 10 Pro May Update (1903). Please help

I am not sure how Office 365 works and how the executables may change or be updated. One of the Intel support engineers will have to assist with this.

Hi JMerl,

 

Thank you for your reply to Intel® SSD support group.

 

We have reviewed the information provided. There are several issues not compatible with a standard Intel® Optane™ Memory installation, perhaps some recent changes were made to your computer, usually when Intel® Optane™ Memory is factory installed, the manufacturer is the main source of support for cases like this. Please bear in mind, products are manufactured by Intel®; however, as an OEM product, Intel® provides generic versions of hardware, software and drivers. Your OEM (ASUS*) is responsible for altered features, customization incorporated, or other changes made.

 

In order to Intel® Optane™ Memory function properly, your BIOS needs to be set to UEFI; however our recommendation is to check with your Laptop manufacturer ASUS* for proper BIOS configuration procedure. Please find some details on this link provided by ASUS*: https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1013015

 

Your Optane Memory is paired with your HDD and any changes in your BIOS might render your Laptop unusable, since it might not boot at all, please make sure you contact ASUS* for proper instructions on BIOS configuration procedure

 

Please download your Laptop manual on this link: https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ASUS-VivoBook-Pro-15-N580GD/HelpDesk_Manual/

 

Don’t hesitate to contact us in case you might have any additional inquiries.

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

Thank you very much for your support. I have checked with msinfo32 and I can see my BIOS is in UEFI mode, I'm attaching a screenshot. If so, is there any other possible explanation for this issue?msinfo32_screenshot.jpg

Thank you again. I'm sending you a screenshot, I hope it's ok. By the way, today I deactivated Optane memory, uninstalled the software, reinstalled the software and activated Optane again and I could pin Office apps one more normally, same as last time. After 2 days or so, Office apps disappear and cannot be pinned again. I hope you can help me solve this issue

I have another question. If my Optane memory is paired with my system partition, isn't it possible to pin folders or files from another partition?Optane_screenshot.jpg

Hi JMerl,

 

Thank you for your reply to Intel® SSD support group.

 

As per the information provided, we must indicate your Intel® Optane™ Memory is correctly paired with your HDD, however your drive is partitioned and Pinning might not work properly due to this. Pinning is only available when accelerating the system/boot drive (the drive/media that contains the OS).

 

Please make sure your BIOS is set to UEFI from your BIOS screen, you might want to check with your computer manufacturer for instructions on how to check your BIOS settings.

 

As per your second question, it’s not possible to pin files or folders on your secondary partition or secondary drives, when you have selected acceleration on your primary drive/partition.

 

For further details on Pining, please refer to the following link for additional information: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000028779/memory-and-storage.html

 

Don’t hesitate to contact us in case you might have any additional inquiries.

We will be looking forward to your reply.
